So If I remember right. The explanation as to why people in orbit appear to be weightless is cause they are in free fall. and because they are in an innertail frame we see them as weightless. this explanation bothers me some. cause I feel as though that innertail frame is still expieriencing gravity. if that inertial frame was no where near earth or any other large mass wouldnt we be able to tell the difference. I guess I am thinking that since I am made of mass I have a gravitational pull. so if i let go of an apple it would orbit me, if i was no where near a larger body. but if I was on the space station and let go of an apple it would just fall with me. Am i thinking about this wrong?
